Full Text of JOE Listing:

The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, a non-profit research organization with a mission to improve the well-being of low- and moderate-income people, seeks a Policy Analyst or Senior Policy Analyst to conduct analyses and design policy proposals across a wide range of federal budget and economic issues.

The Analyst will be part of the Center’s Federal Fiscal Policy team and will work with senior team members who have deep experience in economic policy and federal budget and tax issues. A substantial part of the Analyst’s role will be to help interpret, critique, explain, and apply academic and other original research to the Center’s policy work. Research relevant to the team’s work in issues including taxation, economic security programs, and the macroeconomy (such as the fiscal response to the recession and recovery) often spans a variety of disciplines, but especially applied micro- and macroeconomics. The work of the Analyst will be highly relevant to current legislative developments, so the role offers a unique insight into federal policymaking processes and an opportunity to help influence major policy decisions.
